As Bolton Pick Raises Fears of Pre-Emptive Attack, Pyongyang Urges US to Adopt 'Serious Attitude' for Peace

Andrea Germanos, staff writer

A senior North Korea official on Monday urged the United States to behave as if it seriously wants peace.

In his short speech to the general assembly of the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU), a global organization based in Geneva, Ri Jong Hyok said, "Now is the high time to put an end to the U.S. anachronistic anti-DPRK hostile policy and its futile moves of sanctions and pressure."

I second Pyongyang’s sentiments. It is way past time for the US to adopt a ‘serious attitude’ for peace.

The senior official is extremely naive if he thinks the US will ever behave as if it seriously wants peace! The only peace the fascists like CRAZY JOHN WANT IS TO BOMB THE WORLD TO PIECES!

Start with the 29% who support war.

Wall Street loathes peaceful solutions…no profit in peace…big money in war…especially the eternal occupations and wars that Murka’s 21st century agenda mandates.

Dubya telling us “I am a war president” set the tone for the agenda during the early years of the century.

Trumpco is trying to isolate the US with only the support of Third World Dictators. He shuns Europe, China and nations other than Russia with a viable military. Does the Trumpco massive arrogance prevent them from setting up the US for attack? Or understanding that tossing around nukes like candy may cause other nations with nukes to join in too?


#7

Far from being naive, I think the senior North Korean official is indicating that Pyongyang is learning to play the international PR game. It recognizes that the Trump administration has added yet another loose cannon in Bolton and is trying to position itself as the responsible adults in any upcoming talks, which I don’t think will happen in any case.

The emergence of Kim Jong-un’s sister Kim Yo-jong, pretty and personable, in recent event seems to indicate North Korea’s willingness to go on a charm offensive to woo world opinion and help mitigate its pariah status (and deflect attention from two female pawns facing the death penalty in Malaysia as part of Jong-un’s assassination plot against his half-brother).


#8

First I thought perhaps Trump would get the Nobel Peace Prize for bringing the two Koreas together. Now it’s beginning to look like Kim Jong-un.

That a blood-thirsty idiot like Bolton can become National Security Advisor, including as someone who helped make the decision to invade Iraq and continues to support it, shows the utter breakdown of sanity in Washington. If we avoid World War III we’ll be lucky.

Thanks for your perspective.


#11

You commie you.

SOLIDARITY!

Until bombings actually start, then that number goes up to 75% in the U.S. Gotta keep all those yellow ribbon sweatshops and SUPPORT OUR HEROES bumper-sticker factories going, even though they’re not in the U.S. - just owned by U.S. plutocrats and oligarchs.

Every nation that has tried to achieve security and peace from the US and its lap-dogs has been destroyed. Feigning deadly weaponry only accelerated the carnage and slaughter.

North Korea has great cause to fear the madness - as Iraq, Libya, Syria, Palestine, Latin American nations have - and the South should see finally they are only a pawn to US belligerence, territorial exploitation and occupation, cloaked in “security” - all people are pawns to the madness. The US doesn’t give a shite about South Korea’s (or anyone else’s) millions - even the Earth itself.

So what do the warmongers care about? Power, wealth, status and to be seen as “great”, religion? The metastasizing madness we are witnessing is rooted in all of these, glued together by greed, vulture capitalist economic domination, ignorance, racism, bigotry and idiot ideology.

The entire world itself and all nations have great reason to fear the madness of the depraved people in power and their utter lack of wisdom, decency, empathy, integrity, moral compass, rationality, and I must say love - a madness we and Mother Earth - all will be lucky to survive…

Actually it’s the 1% that support war that is the real problem, and it’s the 1% of them.

It’s not about North Korea. It’s about Iran. Israel and Saudi Arabia want Russia to quit backing Iran so they can topple that country. Everything else - NK included, is a vis a vis way to get Russia into war and maybe even nuke them(and us) so Israel and Saudi Arabia can topple Iran.

They don’t care about the United States or Russia or North Korea or anyone but themselves. Look at the blood trail they’ve left to show what they are - it’s full of women and children and innocent civilians. The US is just a tool. They bought out our politicians and we are in Proxy wars for them. They’ll nuke the world to get what they want in the mid east. It’s the Saudi Royal Family and a few insane for Israel billionaires.

Right now Europe is throwing out Russian Diplomats on bequest of the United States over some highly suspicious ex-Russian spy poisoning in the UK. It’s a scary move to see the diplomats leave. That’s usually what happens when they’re about to start a war. No more diplomacy. The war party doesn’t want diplomacy.

End the Wars at Home and Abroad!
The time is now to return to the street to make our voices heard. Join us on April 14-15 for united, nationally coordinated regional mobilizations to challenge the war makers and defend humanity. The future is in our hands.
